“Often the serious challenges facing older adults in our community are hidden and this increases their vulnerability, and here at Frog Hollow, we want to change that,” said Gary Dobbin, Executive Director of Frog Hollow Neighbourhood House.
According to Ministry of Health documents, approximately 10 per cent of seniors will experience some form of physical, emotional, financial, or sexual abuse. It is also believed that the abuse of seniors is significantly under reported.
“Our elders deserve a safe, healthy environment,” says Lanny, a member of the Frog Hollow’s Multicultural Seniors Advisory Committee. “Let’s ensure their physical comforts and mental well beings are attended to.”
Frog Hollow WEAAD Webinar invites the community to bring greater recognition to the mistreatment of older adults and promote prevention activities that allow seniors in the community to live safely and with dignity.
